. president obama went to the u.n. and he gave a speech saying that this was about a youtube video almost attacking free speech, frankly, saying that as the united states we will not stand for this sort of insult to islam. he said this two weeks after it was well-known thought was a planned coordinated terrorist attack. >> explain to me -- >> had nothing to do with the youtube video. >> what is the scandal here? that just fight all these investigations? >> so let me say three reasons why i think it matters. number one for the first time in 30 years, american diplomats were killed on diplomatic soil, on u.s. soil. number one. number two, it matters for people that are going into the diplomatic corps and whether or not they trust their nation when there's information that they could be at serious risk as the ambassador had communicated whether or not we took precautions to actually address that. whether we could execute on it. next, once there was a fire fight and we knew there was lots of reasons why this was predictable that we were going to be at siege at that particular compound -- >> o

grenell the former spokesman to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. rick, thanks for joining us. i interviewed glen greenwald. the reason we brought him on cashing in which i'm going to air it tomorrow morning on the fox news channel. the reason why i brought him on is because president obama promised the nsa was not going to look into private emails of americans. this week the "the washington post" reports that that likely happened when the nsa infiltrated google and yahoo and allowed them to have access to email accounts. now, the question is, do you think that's right? is that fair? should he be looking at americans' emails? >> well, i think the policy is that they are not looking inside specific emails of americans if it happens to occur, it's not because it's the nsa policy. look, glen greenwald and other journalists have the responsibility to push for transparency in this program. there is no question transparency is a good thing so is congressional oversight. democrat who control the senate have been very bad about pushing the nsa and pushing that these programs and policies are are not

has been facilitating arms transfers from iran into syria in violation of u.n. resolutions. he has been providing navy intelligence to the iranian government to forces in the persian gulf and escalated the shiite terrorism occurring in syria himself. so for him to come in and ask for this assistance, it's important for the united states and the president to impose conditions. one, he has to guarantee the protection of the inhabitants of camp liberty. two, he has to stop these shipments of arms from iran to syria. and three, he has to permit sunnis to come back in the government and reconcile the role that sunnis need to play in iraq or else the sectarian violence will cause a complete meltdown in iraq. >> realistically do we have the leverage to make that happen? >> he needs these arms and that's the best leverage we have. after years of treasure and blood lost in iraq, the best we can do is leverage our arms transfers to him. >> let me ask you finally to give us your overall assessment of iraq right now and where you think things are headed? >> it is going from bad to worse. there

, very violent. the u.n. says 7,000 iraqi civilians have died this year, that is on par with 2008, violence we haven't seen now for about five years, and that is really the backdrop where you have prime minister malachi coming here to meet president obama today. we expect he will be asking for military assistance. there is some fighter jets that are on order from iraq to the u.s. u.s. officials telling us those are going to continue, that they're also open perhaps to giving more intelligence help to iraq, but it's a very dire situation, and especially, carol, when you're looking at bordering syria and iran and really the issues with the region, the situation in iraq is very important in relation to the other flashpoints we're seeing there in the region. this is a very big deal today. >> a big deal but is it likely president obama will be forthcoming with military help from iraq? >> the u.s. says, carol, that it is open to certain types of military assistance, not closing the door obviously, you see the fighter jets heading to iraq that are on order. i think the real concern for a

with the u.n. right-to-protect interventions beginning in the 1990's? the nsa and the cyber threat commands with the u.s. army are indistinguishable. what is the potential impact with the right to protect with domestic issues and foreign issues? a classic example would be with the mexican cartels and all instances across the mexican border and with syria. >> want to start domestic and go foreign or start foreign and go domestic? one of the problems we had in one of the problems on sovereignty is the actual definition of sovereignty. one of the problems we had in pakistan was that in questions when we were accused of violating the sovereignty of pakistan to kill osama bin laden, one of the counter arguments made from our side was that pakistan does not control the entire sovereignty of its country. the pakistani army does not extend its writ to the border of afghanistan. that is one of the reasons america has to take other measures. what i am getting at is be careful about the solidity of sovereignty. it is a spongy concept in a lot of the countries we are dealing with. second, the idea of h

states effectively hat in hand asking for help because his country is back in a civil war. the u.n. said around a thousand people are now being killed in iraq every single month. prime minister maliki wants the united states to supply more weapons, to supply drones, and to generally get reengaged in iraq's security. and the level of violence overall in iraq is now returned to roughly 2008 level. now, that's a significant statement, because it means the gains of the u.s. surge have been effectively wiped out and that would mean a great deal for all of the americans who served there working so hard to bring the country some degree of stability to see it go back to where it is right now. >> richard, we are also getting more details this morning about a u.s. drone strike that killed the leader of the pakistani taliban. what do we know at this point? >> reporter: ma sued, he was the leader of the pakistani taliban that killed many people. it's believed he was killed by a u.s. drone strike and this is something of a vendetta attack from the u.s. intelligence because mussad was believed to be r

anthony ciancia. c-i-a-n-c-i-a. they say he is 23 years old, born in february of 1990. a u.s. citizen who is living in the l.a. area. and as for the motive -- we're a long way from knowing that for certain. there is some indication, we're told, that he had strong anti-government views. that's based on some written material that we're told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by l.a. airport police. he is said to be in critical condition at the ucla medical. we believe that all of the people who were shot, all of the people he shot, were employees of the it tsa. one of whom was killed, three of whom were wounded, with varying degrees of severity of their injuries. but that he didn't shoot anyone else. one telling thing is what a witness said, who talked earlier today to msnbc, who said that the witness was approached by the gunman who said, do you work for the tsa. so it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the tsa. now, there had been some initial reporting from some news organizations that this suspect had a connecti
